DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - Like the first film, this is an effect-heavy science fiction action-adventure with giant robots and monsters. The few returning stars from the first film--Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman--only appear in a secondary capacity, with a new, younger cast led by John Boyega being the main concern. The younger ages of the leads give this added youth appeal, but like the first film, there is some intense action and mild language that may be of concern for parents of young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average On a craft level, this sequel...isn't terrible. Younger kids might like it... And the cast is filled with actors doing everything they can to make their characters as memorable as possible even when the script (credited to four people) isn't lending them the support they deserve.

USA Today Full Review
Average Even as the film suffers groan-inducing plot turns, Boyega's charisma keeps it watchable... ...ridiculous sequel... ...veers perilously close to Sharknado territory with hammy dialogue... But if rock-'em, sock-'em nonsense is your jam, Uprising has it in spades.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Poor It is a collection of noises and images and military jargon being oorah-ed at sternum-rattling volume and featherweight CGI destruction and WTF slo-mo sequences and the occasional feeling that you've been cheated...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 57 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: It's no surprise that all the kids loved "Pacific Rim."
TEENS: Only 40% of the males loved "Pacific Rim." That's a bit low for this type of movie since it is clearly targeted at the teen male age group. Fortunately, another 30% indicated that they enjoyed it very much. The remaining 30% felt it was only an "average" movie. As for the ladies, one loved it and one enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved it, one enjoyed it very much and two rated it just "average." There were no ladies in this group.
ADULTS: Half the males and just over half the ladies either loved "Pacific Rim" or they enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining 45% to 50% felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The rebellious Jake Pentecost (JOHN BOYEGA), a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the monstrous "Kaiju." Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father's legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (RINKO KIKUCHI, Babel)-who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
